Books Info:

Edward Trencom's Nose free pdf Situated on London' s Foster Lane, there is a quintessentially Georgian, redbrick house with a green door bearing the sign trencoms, 1662. It' s the home of the Trencom family' s cheese store, a generational establishment begun by Humphrey Trencom that now, 303 years later, is run by Edward Trencom. Quaint though it may seem, it bears witness to a strange occurrence of " accidents" that seem to befall every generation of the curd-loving family..
Edward Trencom has bumbled through life, relying on his trusty nose to turn the family cheese shop into the most celebrated "fromagerie" in England. This was no ordinary nose, but one long, aquiline, and furnishing the trademark circular bump over the bridge---the very same nose bestowed on all the Trencom men. It was extraordinary, able to discern the composition, maturity, and quality of cheese---and the Trencom noses had sniffed, whiffed, and judged the very best cheeses of the world.
But on an ordinary day, Edward' s world is turned upside down when he stumbles across a crate of family papers. To his horror, he discovers that nine previous generations of his family have come to sticky ends because of their noses. When he investigates---despite his grandfather' s caveat never to look into the origin of his nose---Edward finds himself caught up in a Byzantine riddle to which there is no obvious answer. And like his ill-fated ancestors, he is hunted down by rival forces whose identity and purpose remaina total mystery.
Trapped between the mad, the bad, and a cheese to die for, Edward Trencom' s nose must make a choice---and for the last nine generations it has made the catastrophically wrong decision.
Giles Milton' s deliciously comic debut novel is a mouthwatering blend of Tom Sharpe and P. G. Wodehouse. From the noble Roquefort to the piquant "E poisses," every page is permeated by the pungent odor of cheese. Praise for Giles Milton
" He has a rare ability---a talent for sifting fine pearls from faraway sands and for transmuting the merely arcane into little literary gems."
---Simon Winchester, "The" "Boston Globe "
" Milton spins a fascinating tale. . . . Exuberantly eccentric characters stride the pages." ---"Time" magazine on "Nathaniel' s Nutmeg"
" In an exceptionally pungent, amusing, and accessible historical account, Giles Milton brings readers right into the midst of these colonists and their daunting American adventure." --- Janet Maslin, "The New York Times," on "Big Chief Elizabeth"
